LINCOLN — Nebraska lawmakers will be working longer days for the rest of this session to debate the bills before them.

Speaker of the Legislature Greg Adams of York announced plans Tuesday to adjourn at about 6 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. each day for the next three weeks, instead of the traditional 5 p.m. adjournment.

He also told senators to plan on staying until 8:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays from April 22 through May 2, then adjourning at 8:30 p.m. or later for the rest of the session.

“We're going to do the people's work and whatever it takes to get it done, we'll do,” he said.

The Nebraska Legislature meets for 90 legislative days during odd-numbered years and for 60 days during odd-numbered years.

The 2013 legislative session is slated to end June 5.
